Human development is the expression of a process through which men and women are offered opportunities to have a longer life, more education and a greater income, which lead to improved well-being. However, such opportunities have been historically denied to women, as has been their participation in economic, political and decision-making activities. The objective of this article is to show the level of development and empowerment for women versus men in the northern region of Mexico (Coahuila, Chihuahua and Durango). The results show that women have reduced the gap in the options they have for developing their capacities, though inequity in their usage persists.
